    Another benefit of having a g-league team in virtually the same city, is that you can increase the number of practices for your young guys - extremely important with the limited practices allowed by the CBA.

    I think this will have a big impact. The competition in the European leagues has been, and continues to be, at a higher caliber than G League. But as players start to see more money in the G League, and as the rest of the league winds up with their own teams for development purposes, teams could have 5 NBA players (including two way contracts), and more intense scrutiny. That could make it more attractive to North American players who have earned a couple of years salary overseas, and now want to play closer to home, and closer to The NBA.

    Anyways I think tt's more of a showcase league rather than developmental one.
    No idea why you'd feel that way. Young players need professional game experience as a part of their development, and for many the g-league is that opportunity. If you've paid attention you'd know that Bruno actually has come a long way, even if he's still not NBA-ready.

    Then, the 905 project is what two years in? Maybe some patience is called for?

    I really don’t know what you are expecting. A better Bruno I guess?
    I expected players to develop some sort of skill or feel for the game after their stint with D-league

    Which recent events are you referring to? Were you expecting it to turn every player into NBA starter material? Waste of Resources? Yeah maybe their new practice facility could have been a little nicer instead.
    Maybe unnecessary is too strong. But I'm not sure they are using it correctly. Something is missing in this whole thing. Maybe their scouting just sucks.

    It's kinda hard for me to say that "Oh without Gleague Norman Powell, Delon Wright would've been worse"

    After recent events I'm starting to think that Raptors 905 was a failure as a developmental tool. Whole thing is a overrated and unnecessary waste of resources.

    Powell definitely benefited from his D-League stint. He looked not ready at all early that season and much better after his time there.

    Please tell me this is a joke. If not, take a look at how ready our young squad is to play together.
    Is it really because of 905 though? Yak barely played in Dleague. Delon and FVV never really played together in D-league. Norman Powell was too good for D-league when he joined. Bebe and Bruno who played the most never became NBA players. Tavares was waived by Cavs. Toupane went to Europe and so did so many others.
